About the Book

A HANDSOME SLIPCASE EDITION THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTENARY ANNIVERSARY OF ONE OF AUSTRALIA'S FAVOURITE CLASSICS.

Believing wholeheartedly that children preferred food to fairies, Norman Lindsay concocted a recipe for success that has lingered for one hundred years.

Here are the adventures of Sam Sawnoff, Barnacle Bill andAlbert, the cut-and-come again pudding, who requires 'politeness and constanteatin'.'

Now in a slipcase, this beautifully designed edition of a perennial favourite also includes a section, 'From the Publisher's Archives' that contains a fascinating collection of correspondence between Norman Lindsay and his publishers, Angus & Robertson. The letters have come from the A & R Archives held in the Mitchell Library and were selected with the assistance of Lindsay's granddaughter, Helen Glad, who also wrote a short biography of him especially for this book.

In print since 1918, this slipcase edition is the perfect gift and is sure to whet the appetite of all 'puddin' fanciers'.


PRAISE

'This is the funniest children's book ever written. I've been laughing at it for fifty years, and when I read it again this morning, I laughed as much as I ever did.' - Philip Pullman

'The book is full of songs that pitch along like boats on a rough sea. The tremendous black and white drawings are full of ne'er do well character...It is an outrage that it is not on every English family's menu.' - The Observer
